    Today we're looking at comparing a $1,000.00 camera VS an $8,000.00 camera. Specifically, the 80D vs the 1DXMK2. I have seen the 80D on sale as low as 999.99 which is why I went with that comparison price. Keep currency conversions in mind.
    2 MASSIVELY different cameras. You may be saying, why would you compare 2 cameras on such a drastically different scale? That makes no sense and no one would ever compare those two - Yes and No. I wanted to go over a few of the features that MAKE a camera 8,000.00 opposed to those that don't. The quality difference is also incredibly evident.

      Easy. Get the camera, sell it.
      That would esily pay for my current gear, as well as WAY MORE than one week at wherever I'd wanna go.
      Use your heads people.

    How can you make 4 million views on a promo video about a dying brand trying to sell a clumsy 8000$ camera !? 😂 Doesn't smell right.

    Why is it so much money? Because Canon likes to show up late to the party, convince you that less features is more, and charge premium prices.

    I fortunately found a used(in new condition) 80d and a bunch of accessories for $450. I heavily enjoy the photo quality. i still like my panasonic gh4 better for video though for now. I will keep working on the settings to see if I can't make it just as good as the gh4

    The most important thing as a photographer is being able to "see" as a photographer and get that vision captured. This develops over time as you gain more experience.
    I started on a £50 cheap film camera 40 years ago and now shoot on a s/h D800 + 24-70, that combo was around £5000 new, it cost me £2300, 2 years later. Don't discount s/h from a trusted reseller, the stuff has usually been well looked.
    The main things are, enjoy your photography, ultimately, unless you are shooting for a client, it's about what makes you happy. Get out and shoot, stop worrying about getting the TOL camera or gadget because it won't make you a better photographer until you learn the basic skills, you'll just be frustrated trying to learn all the camera functions.
    And with digital, learn to edit well.

    I only have a 60D and it only shoots at 1080p30 or 720p60. When I need slow motion, it looks so soft that it looks like I added Gaussian blur

    Why buy the 80D when the 800D does almost the same? The choice of lens will make a real difference.

    Danny Boyle shot 28 Days later on what's basically a 480p camera. It cost a few hundred dollars on eBay. It wasn't a cutting edge camera then and it's not one now. But Danny Boyle is an amazing story teller. The dude could make amazing stories with pencil and paper. Will the 8k camera look better than the 1k. Yes. But you can have any camera you want, but if you're not good with it, or at telling whatever story your telling, including lights, angles etc. It'll be subpar.

    Peter, was this sit down shot at 1080p internal? I heard it is soft, looks pretty good to me if so. If not I’m assuming 4K.

    Skrew 4k. Remember when people were real appreciative of 1080p resolution. I bet when 8k becomes a thing people won't want 4k resolution.
